To Those of You with Aching Hearts

I come to this forum to read the lovely poems
and want to sit and talk to each broken hearted one

I want to tell you that life is not a piece of cake
sometimes we make wrong decisions in choosing our mates

Love is a mystery an elusive thing to grasp
we think we are in love and yet somehow it doesn't last

At first it's a heady attraction for most of us it seems
and sometimes love grows between two hostile human beings

It is just a mirror a reflection and a moment in time
If it were the true love you were looking for in life
then it is time to hear some motherly advice

Love is not something we can put our finger on
It doesn't always follow a path when all is said and done

But, when the person you have given your heart
has stepped on it hard 'til you think it will fall apart

Remember, around the corner is a love that is truly for the best
and each time our hearts break asunder it is just life's test

For when it is truly true love from the very start
Your heart will never break until death do you part

Sometimes, we love too hard and hope that it is the one
but after the passion, soon our clay feet start to showin'

Life demands compromises when push comes to shove
and if those didn't work out then it wasn't true love

So though I will champion you, taking your side
I know that soon hope will again be in your eyes

"Mother Swan"...*smile*
much more poetic than mother goose, dont ya agree?  
very sweet and caring swan...
sometimes it is hard to read all the sad poems and not feel like you want to hold an console the poet.
quiet comfort to each other, we are indeed.
take care, jm

Swan, as tears fall upon my cheek
I read your poem and I am pleased
Your kind words of truth are embracing
To many hearts that still are aching.

I was thrilled by the comments and
hoping y'all didn't think I was hard
hearted hannah. --)
thanks to you all, am truly trying to help.
I raised four siblings and three sons
of my own and still can hear their
broken hearted sobs echoing in my ears.
and see that each one of them have found
true love in spite of the pain their
poor hearts sobbed upon.

Hugs to you all, and thank you.
